Biography

Lean, sharp-featured character player of film and TV usually in Westerns, crime dramas, and action flicks. Drago's pointy chin and thin lips served to enhance the cruel smile of his sadistic villains. He may be best known for his performance as Al Capone's coolly vicious enforcer, Frank Nitti, in Brian De Palma's "The Untouchables" (1987). Drago was also the arch-villain in the light-hearted Western adventure series "The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr." (Fox, 1993-94).
